OTD Hosts Annual Blogger Bash in Frederick
On May 2, OTD held its annual Blogger Bash at Frederick’s McClintock Distilling. Bringing together regionally-based bloggers and Maryland’s county tourism partners for networking and local culinary delights, Blogger Bash seeks to expand Maryland’s travel footprint in the influential blogger-sphere. This year’s event welcomed more than 20 bloggers selected for their influence, reach, and synergy with Maryland’s tourism message. Also on hand were private tourism partners and DMOs from across the state.
This year’s focus was on culinary hot spots, upcoming events, and Maryland attractions through the lens of summer road trips across Maryland. The day also included an afternoon workshop at Frederick’s National Museum of Civil War Medicine for DMO partners to discuss the changing public relations industry and best practices for working with bloggers, influencers, and social media channels.
